Kirsty Hewitt

 Kirsty HewittPhD candidate
I finished my MA in English (1850-Present) at King's College London in September 2016, where I studied such things as Modernism and Illness Narratives. I regularly update my (largely non-academic) book blog, and try to read as widely as I can in my spare time.

Research and Teaching Interests

My PhD project looks at the links between four Modernist female authors (Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield, Dorothy Richardson, and May Sinclair), and the developing discourses of neurology and psychiatry.
